Sugar Intake Affects Heart Health, Major New Study FindsA major review study has found that as sugar intake increases, so do the odds of life-threatening heart issues. Regardless of age, sex, weight, or physical activity level, when consumption of sugar increased, so did heart health issues.

The largest study of its kind to date, this 15-year study is the first nationally representative study to examine the link between sugar and serious heart issues. More than 40,000 U.S. adults participated, with an average age of 44.

People who consumed the most sugar were four times as likely—a 400% increase—to have life-threatening heart issues as those whose diets included the least added sugar.

The safest amount of sugar intake was less than 10% of daily calories. Yet in 2005-2010 over 70% of adults consumed more sugar than that every day.  The average sugar intake for American adults is about 15% percent of daily calories.

Most people eat more sugar than the safest amount, and the main source of all that sugar is sugar-sweetened drinks—including sodas, juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, teas, and coffees.  Added sugars also lurk in unexpected places like breads, sauces, and dressings.

Instead of reaching for sugar-sweetened drinks, drink Oxylent! One of the things that differentiates Oxylent from other effervescent multivitamin drinks is that Oxylent contains no sugar and is sweetened with pure and natural stevia instead.

With the growing evidence that limiting your sugar intake can help you live a healthier life, the last place you need more added sugar is in your daily multivitamin drink.

Each packet of Oxylent dissolves in water to create a refreshing sparkling drink that delivers a 5-in-1 formula of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and electrolytes. All with no sugar, calories, dairy, gluten, soy, caffeine, or GMOs.
